Corpus Luteum
The Corpus Luteum is the yellow tissue that forms in the ovary of a female mammal after ovulation. If fertilization does not occur, the corpus luteum degenerates. This song is dedicated to my friends who have tried to bear children and who have lost these children from miscarriages.

Touch Me Not
Inspired by the middle eastern vocal sample on the Linkpage Refill Vol.1 and Raapie's Mellotronic NN19 refill (a bundle of samples for Reason software), I composed this and finished it on April 5, 2004, Holy Monday. Additional refill used for the song: peff 001 subtractor patches.

Distant Promise
When the one person you cherish most is removed from your side by geographical distance, the hope of tomorrow becomes the distant promise of a life far better than the one you lead now. This one is for my wife Agnes.

Denial
This song was composed in 2003, soon after applying for a visa to the United States. I was denied one. But instead of drowning my sorrows in alcohol, I went for sorrowful melodies instead.

Samsara
In Hinduism and Buddhism, Samsara is the word for the endless cycle of birth and suffering and death and rebirth. This track is my way of saying that the time between birth and death is not all suffering. There is also joy, peace, love and the search for truth.

Subject: Top quality chill-out electronics.
Nice to see great netlabels sprouting up all over the world, and this is really nice downtempo work, reminiscent of 'nu chill' in a lot of ways, and extremely listenable. Good stuff!
